We are proud to publish a new issue of the Journal of Façade Design and Engineering. This first issue of volume 10 covers a broad range of themes such as adaptivity, automation, circularity, refurbishment, daylight, acoustics, and user interaction are addressed by peer-reviewed articles.
We would also like to take this opportunity to share some changes in the JFDE editorial team and publishing process. Prof. Tillmann Klein is changing his role from editor-in-chief to editorial board member. Tillmann Klein has been a front-runner in open-access publishing since JFDE was launched in 2013. Together with Ulrich Knaack he was responding to a call from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) to develop new Journal models. The editorial team is most grateful for its outstanding contribution to making JFDE a reference point in the façade design and engineering field. The role is taken over by Dr. Thaleia Konstantinou, who has been promoting the Journal as managerial editor in the past years.
As we go forward, we strive to ensure scientific quality as well as relevance for society and industry. JFDE has revised the editorial process giving a larger responsibility to the editorial board to control the scientific rigour of our published articles. We have also introduced procedures to regularly extend the editorial board.
It makes us very proud to have reached the 10th year of publishing with JFDE, respected and valued by our authors and readers. Thanks for this! And, of course: to be continued!
